Dippers is a modified Nippers and surf education program that is open to all ages and abilities. The program was developed by Autism Swim (AS) and is run in collaboration with local Surf Life Saving Clubs (SLSC). The SLSC’s have a proven track record in water education and provide some of the volunteers needed to run a safe program.
The Dippers program is now in its 5th year and has expanded from its original location, Bondi, to five sites across New South Wales and one in Queensland:
- Port Macquarie
CPE Capital is pleased to support Autism Swim for the 3rd year running. Together with other partners, this support enables AS to run the program during summer.
